  1. Time Zone setting for Web Outlook Mail

    Time Zone Settings for Web Outlook Mail:

    When I use Web Outlook Mail for my emails and event schedules, there is no way to change the Time Zone of an event scheduled via email.

    Looking for an update. Thank you.

  2. Allow different work time hours each day

    Allow me to specify Work Time separately for each day. There are many situations where people work different hours each day and maintaining OOO bubbles on my calendar is just a dumb workaround.

  3. Add Support for Non-Gregorian Calendars

    It would be great if Outlook.com allowed users to display an alternate calendar on top of the standard Gregorian Calendar as is possible in the Microsoft Office Outlook application. Even better would be the ability to schedule recurring appointments on a non-Gregorian calendar.

    The specific example I'm thinking of is the Hebrew soli-lunar calendar, which would be useful for me (and likely for others) for keeping track of my relatives' Yahrzeits (anniversary of passing).

    I am sure that this feature would be greatly appreciated by users of other calendars (Arabic, Chinese, etc.) as well and would set Outlook.com apart from…

  4. Calendar times should check local system time

    The current calendar uses the server time zone. Not checking the system clock or IP time zone means as I travel all my meeting times around are off by different amounts and its up to me to do the mental math of figuring out what time my meeting is. I have to do mental math and constantly double check things because the most basic calendar function "what time is my meeting" is broken. Add to the fact that I'm based, when not traveling, three time zones away from our main office means that all my meeting times are always off…

  6. Integrating To Do Lists With The Calendar

    Hi There

    Just a couple of quick suggestions for you that I believe would make this much better and user friendly application:

    1 Please could you allow us to see both the calendar and tasks list on the same page. In addition would it be possible to create multiple tasks which can be viewed at the same time. E.G If you block out a time on your calendar for Making Calls you can look directly at your Calls To Do List and take relevant action. Having multiple To Do Lists displayed at the same time would make life even more…

  7. importing calendars

    Please can you bring back the import calendar facility it is no longer there or if it is I can't find it.
    Also this calendar no longer sync's with the windows 10 calendar which is really annoying particularly when you have 4 devices and have to individually update 2 different calendars on each device

  8. Tasks view

    Would be nice to have more options for viewing tasks, starting with a grouping by category, already available for mail.

  12. Set calendar for appointment

    Please give us the option to change the calendar an appointment is stored and also select the calendar where an appointment is added when an invitation is accepted.

    I use different calendars, some of them are shared, some not. When I receive a meeting invitation it is always added to my main calendar. And since the new beta version it is not even possible to change the calendar of a self created appointment.

  13. Out of office color contrast

    The contrast in color when there is an all-day out of office event needs to be improved. It's almost impossible to see a difference.

  17. Darker Out of Office on Calendar

    I wish the out of office setting on the calendar was a much darker color to clearly show when out for the full day. Past versions of outlook had the calendar setting being much darker so it was easy to see outages, I wish it would be that clear again.

  18. Please make it possible to embed a public Outlook calendar into a website, and make the view customizable.

    I really would like it if I could display my calendar on my website. Now this is only possible by linking to a full-screen Outlook webpage. I'd rather embed this calender into my website. Also, I would like to have a month, week, day and agenda view like in the UWP app, so the agenda could adapt to the window size, just like my website does. It would be great if the layout was customizable. Much like Google Calendar, basically; only manageable from within Outlook 2016, so much better! ...

  20. In Calendar Peek and To-Do bar show days with appointments as bold

    Is this also a User Voice for Outlook for Windows aka desktop?

    In Outlook 2010 in the To-Do bar the Calendar showed days with appointments in bold. Outlook 2013 does not do this. Please bring back this feature.

    People with busy schedules may not appreciate this feature if every day is bolded. But I am not like that, and would very much appreciate the extra remember of what days in the month I already have something so need to be careful when planning or accepting new appointments or meetings.
